Pink Wishes - PPA14

Pals Paper Arts is hosting a very special challenge this week for Breast Cancer Awareness month. The PPA Design Team is dedicating the challenge to Karol Harris, the mother of our own Kris Kilcoyne, who is currently battling Stage IV Breast Cancer. It is our hope that the challenge will serve as a simple (and fun) reminder to take care of your ta-tas!

Pop over to the PPA site to check out the PINK projects and post your own PINK creation to be entered for some fabulous (PINK) blog candy.

Since Kris and her family have been on my mind lately, I decided to CASE one of her 'Kween Bee Kreations'. Her version was created using My Digital Studio and can be found HERE. Thanks for the inspiration, friend!

I adore this brilliant idea to use one of the ornaments from the Tree Trimming set to create a custom snowflake. A sassy PINK button dresses up the center and coordinates perfectly with the 'homespun' feel I created using Kraft card stock. I hope you love it!

Did I mention there is fabulous PINK BLOG CANDY over at Pals Paper Arts? Just checkin'. ;)
